The reason why Facebook is used by millions of people every single day is because the social media app makes it easier for users to communicate and to get in touch with their family members and friends. However, this all wouldn’t be possible without help from Facebook Messenger. This is a standalone app that Facebook released a couple of years ago and it’s one of the best decisions that Facebook ever made. The chatting app makes it so that Facebook users don’t need to add any other chatting app on their smartphones such as WhatsApp or Viber Messenger for example.
Facebook Messenger 126.96.36.199.13.157 Beta Update
Nonetheless, Facebook Messenger is making headlines today because the chatting app has just received a new update. However, this is not a normal update, it’s a beta exclusive. This means that the only Facebook Messenger users who can download the new release which sports the 188.8.131.52.13.157 version number are those who are enrolled in the beta program.
On the bright side of things, becoming a beta user for Facebook Messenger is fairly simple and everyone who uses an Android-powered smartphone can do it. Furthermore, the new update for Facebook Messenger comes with a handful of bug fixes that improve the software stability of the chatting app and thus, making it easier for users to communicate with their friends and family member.
